To be honest, I've been really lucky along my battle with chronic pain and my neurological disease. Doctors, nurses, specialists, etc have been extremely understanding and I haven't had to get into the, Tylenol/Advil or Advil Liquid Gels argument many times. (Am hopefully not jinxing myself) But, when it does happen it just baffles me. If I could take something like Tylenol and it would work, would I be here right now? Would the pain in my body and eyes be so evident? But, then again, I always try to see both sides in life. (Although, I am always right lol) Doctors and such have to be so cautious and sure with patients because unfortunately there are some people who fake it out there. And it's so dangerous to fake a life like this. So, I get it. What do you think? #thisischronicillness

In the past couple of days, I've come to a realization. I realized I've been fighting someone for 18 years. Someone that does her best to follow my orders, who allows me to make all my own choices even when they are detrimental to her, who pushes through suffering to get me where I need to go, and who heals me and keeps me alive without my respect or gratitude. For 18 years, chronic pain has riddled my body. And for 18 years, I've been blaming my body for that pain. I don't know how many times I've said that my body hates me and that I'm so mad and frustrated with her! I blame her for all the things I've had to miss out on because of the constant pain she holds. But I realized the other day that my body is not the enemy. My body was lovingly handcrafted by the Creator of the universe, and was designed to give me life. She is a precious gift! I have decided I need to switch my thinking. My body is on my side. She is my teammate. She wants to be healed as much as I do! And it's my job to fight alongside her, not against her. To feed her fuel that helps her fight illness, to keep her rested and free from stress as much as possible, to give her the exercise she needs to stay strong. To love her and be grateful to her for all the things she tirelessly does for me, day after day and night after night. And to shape her into a holy, worthy Temple of the Holy Spirit - a place that reflects the beauty of the King of Kings. My body is not a burden, she is freedom. She is strong. She is a fighter. And she is my friend. May I learn to appreciate the gift she is, and be thankful to the One who gave her to my care. 💗 Photo by @songstaforlife! 💞 at Galway, Ireland

@deliciousobsessions

I refuse to watch this new @netflix show called "Afflicted" because I feel it does a great disservice to those who are chronically ill. And I would love to ask you to do the same. So many of us suffer from invisible illnesses that cause people to not believe us or say stupid things like, "well, you don't look sick". I fully accept that even my worst days, where I feel like utter garbage, are nothing compared to what many people I know personally go through every day. Becoming involved in the local chronic illness community has shifted the way I view chronic conditions -- my own and others. There is a whole massive world of hurt out there that no one speaks about or acknowledges. Families torn apart, finances completely ravaged, divorce, loss of shelter and food, and death (whether it be natural causes or suicide). It's heart-breaking and we need to do better. I don't know what the answers are. I wrestle with this a lot. So next time someone talks about their health struggles, please take the time to listen. Offer support. Show love and compassion. Try to understand, even if you don't. And please do all of this even if they "don't look sick". . . . . #Netflix #afflicted #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #MCS #multiplechemicalsensitivity #mecfs #cfs #invisibleillness #moldillness #CIRS #lymedisease #Lyme #health #healing #mindbodyhealing #prejudice #suicide

I used to feel so bad some days that I never thought I was going to feel better again. I felt like I had completely lost touch with how it felt to feel good mentally, physically, emotionally. . Every day was a struggle and I felt so different from everyone else. I also felt very alone since no one around me could relate to what I was going though. . It was hard to explain to people because I looked normal on the outside. I acted in good spirits yet I was really struggling inside. . I looking so hard for answers and solutions that worked, that was all I really cared about. It consumed my life. . I would carry health books with me to work or read articles online during my breaks. It was an endless search for wellness. . I was so desperate that I was willing to do anything. . Then I found @medicalmedium’s book almost 3 years ago, a few weeks after it came out and I dove right in. . Juicing celery quickly became a morning ritual, along with making a heavy metal detox smoothie bowl, and taking pictures of it all to share and hopefully connect with some people going through the same thing. . I actually found that eating this way was not hard compared to some of the other diets I had tried. Plus I was noticing real changes for the first time. . I listened intently to each weekly radio show, taking notes, reading blog posts, and re-reading chapters in the book over and over again. I put the work in to heal because when you feel that badly all of the time you’ll do it. . Back then I didn’t really have anyone to ask questions to, there was a fraction of the @medicalmedium info out as there is now; I worked hard for the information that I needed. 🤓🤓 . I wasn’t always perfect and have learned a lot along the way, and honestly im still not perfect and im still learning. . So if you’re really wanting to heal, but you have questions or feel like you need to be perfect, do the research and just get started regardless of how perfectly you do it. . The only way to get there is to begin. Take that first step. You will be supported through the process. I promise. 🙏🏻💖😇😘🕊✨

✌🏽REASONS to ❤️ ♥️ 💜 @hacoffeebar: the world’s best hibiscus tea + reusable straws 🙌🏽 ➳ ➳ ➳ HIBISCUS is one of my go-to herbal teas because of its abundant medicinal properties. It’s high in Vitamin C (I supplement ⬆️ dose Vit-C for my chronic Lyme, but am always looking to capitalize on food/plant-based sources), anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal, helps to regulate/balance hormones (and alleviate monthly cycle symptoms 💯), contains antioxidants that provide liver support and aid in detoxification (my body needs a TON of help with that due to such low immune system function), and even supports healthy weight management by reducing the absorption of starch and glucose. Another reason to LOVE: it has a naturally fruity flavor without needing to add sweetener #FTW 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 🌺 The next time you visit a local business with plastic straws, suggest they stop providing them and instead provide biodegradable paper straws and/or—BETTER YET—provide reusable stainless steel or glass straws for purchase. Not only is mass consumption of plastic straws an environmental hazard, toxic to sea life and resistant to decomposition, it’s also a potential hazard to your health. ➡️ Contrary to what the industry will tell you, plastics are NOT stable, especially when mixed with acidic and fat-containing drinks (hello iced latte 👋🏽 ), heat and UV light...leading to problems like weight gain, infertility and liver toxicity. Happy healthier sipping! 🤙🏽 . . . . #kauai #lifeinhawaii #plasticfree #noplasticstraws #plasticfreeoceans #environmentaltoxins #hormonehealth #healthycycle #nutrition #plantbased #herbalmedicine #alohaontap #exploremore #islandlife #livingaloha #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #wellnesscoach #circulareconomy #mindbody #healthygut #happyhealthylife #biotoxinillness #lymedisease #healingjourney #toxinfreelifestyle #iinhealthcoach #thenewhealthy #iamwellandgood at Ha Coffee Bar

Life update: my outpatient ED team wants me to be inpatient. Tried to find somewhere to go. Failed. Nowhere will take me with my medical complications and continue my Lyme treatment even when it’s oral protocols and my port would be de-accessed. I’ve tried doing residential and stopping Lyme treatment and it was a horrific shit show I’m not game to repeat. I’m making so much progress with Lyme and honestly am in the best place mentally I’ve been in for a VERY long time since finding joy in working at the stables and remembering what it feels like to have a life worth fighting for. All this to say, I know I have work to do with my ED but I’m completely medically stable and feel like I can do this outpatient. My therapist however wants me to go back to ACUTE. - Seriously?? I don’t need medical stabilization. I’ve been there. Done that. I’ve made more progress in the past two weeks on my own than I did in six in Colorado. So my therapist will no longer see me because she doesn’t believe that outpatient is a good choice for me and so treatment will be stopped totally. To which I say, fine, I’m my own damn Calvary. No one is coming to save me. If I want this life it’s up to me to fight for it. - I had to fight for myself with Lyme every step of the way so if I have to fight for myself with this too then so be it. I don’t need to find the answer. I am the answer. I am enough. I have all that I need within me, I have a God who will carry me when I can’t crawl anymore, I’ve got a life I’m fighting for. I can do this. . . . . #eatingdisorderrecovery #edwarrior #eatingdisorder #anorexiarecovery #anorexiawarrior #outpatientrecovery #inpatientrecovery #weightrestoration #iamenough #chroniclyme #lymedisease #babesia #bartonella #newdailypersistentheadache #ndph #lymewarrior #twloha #fighter #soundofsurviving #hellobeautiful #equinetherapy

This cold/flu has kicked my butt and made it so incredibly hard to stick to my new treatment. It has come at the most inopportune time as I only have 3 weeks left with my picc line. I’ve quarantined myself and have gotten so much rest, hydrated with alkaline water and pedialyte, and taken so many vitamins. I might really need some Cuban Sopa de Pollo🐔 to get rid of this cold/flu. With only 3 weeks of infusions, I need to push hard on the new protocol and herx the 💩 out of these bugs. I honestly would rather be herxing than dealing with cold/flu symptoms. At least with a herx, I get piece of mind that the Lyme spirochetes are dying. #ColdFlu #ColdFluSeason #lymedontkillmyvibe #ChronicLyme #LymeWarrior #LymeFighter #ChronicIllness #LymeStrong #LymeLife #LifeWithLyme #LymeDisease #ThisIsLyme

I used to despise cooking thinking it took too much time and energy, but then I realized how eating healthy home cooked meals actually gives me more energy and life. Now it’s a solid part of my everyday routine. Here’s what I like about cooking my own food: I can control the quality and type of ingredients, I can avoid things like inflammatory vegetable oils, MSG, sugar, and other toxins in inorganic foods, I can be creative and make it super tasty, I’m way more in tune with my body and how foods are effecting me, and I can add nutrient dense foods to biohack my health (gut healing foods, detoxing foods, skin supporting foods, energizing foods, calming foods, etc.). It’s the best🌱 at San Francisco Bay Area

More data from my @ouraring - while I had plenty of sleep, I only had 4 minutes of deep sleep. Uh, that’s not good. I’ll share more info all week that digs deeper into the Oura ring data, including what type of things may be contributing to my lack of deep sleep that restores and repairs. As you can see, sleep quantity and quality matter...

Hello! I am Michelle Poverman (@sageandstone_healing) a Mindfulness based Intuitive Therapist,  Energy Medicine Practitioner and Reiki Teacher. (Translation please?) I combine individual psychotherapy and energy healing as well as teach certification courses in Reiki. My life took a bit of a nose dive when I was suddenly faced with healing Chronic Lyme Disease.  Every aspect of the life I knew had shifted. It was one of the darkest times of my life. AND it was from this experience a seed was planted in that darkness so that I could be exactly where I am today, living purposefully.  It was this deeper spiritual work and energy healing that finally shifted my health. Helping others to heal and deeply remember who they really are, literally makes my heart swell. “Remembering who you are” might seem like a strange concept! Yet we are bombarded with the good and the bad here in this earth school and there are usually layers of limiting beliefs that keep us from experiencing our authentic selves that know exactly what we want and how to get it. I am so excited to create space for women to explore their own authentic selves during day and weekend retreats.  We all need to step away from the every day life of being everything else to everybody else and go within to remember and grow. #intuitive, #reiki, #healing, #mindfulness, #retreats, #womenhelpingwomen, #energy, #energymedicine, #lymedisease, #rememberwhoyouare, #authenticself at Sage And Stone

@lottielyme

Gena & I met in May whilst in treatment at Infusio. I was so incredibly lucky to make a couple of really close friends during my time there & it was one of the biggest blessings of the whole experience & my entire Lyme Disease journey. I was so happy that everyone in my group was able to return for ACT the same week, so it was like a little reunion yesterday at the clinic • Doing treatment every day from 9-5 was very intensive & both physically & mentally draining. I was especially sick & struggling in the second week when my regular medication dose was being adjusted, & having the support of others going through the same thing was so helpful. After not knowing anyone previously in my life who had Lyme, it was so great to meet people who understood what I have felt like these past 3 years, & I feel so fortunate to have been able to form these special relationships • Gena & I stayed at the same place throughout treatment, so we would chat all day at the clinic & then debrief every evening back at the hotel. However, we were so sick & exhausted throughout treatment we were never once able to have dinner together, as even making it down to the hotel restaurant was too difficult. We ate delivery or room service every single night in bed, & it was a goal to be able to come back & go out somewhere to eat • During the 100 days we kept in touch constantly, & interestingly Gena followed a very similar pattern to me - she had 2 months of being far worse than before treatment & bedridden, before seeing improvements from 10 weeks onwards. When we saw each other yesterday we were both struck by how much better the other looked & it was a really special moment to reconnect, with the knowledge of what we had been through & overcome • Last night we finally went out for dinner & had a wonderful time catching up, reminiscing, laughing & preparing for the next phase of treatment. Hopefully our healing will further continue after ACT & the next time we meet up will not be for treatment and just for fun ✨💚 at ROKU Sunset

@lymegetsbetter

You are supported. Always. This can be really hard to feel with an invisible illness like Lyme and tick-borne diseases. Even if you have empathetic friends, family, or a partner, there’re still things they just won’t get. And if you’re single or live alone, I KNOW how your body can go from feeling like a prison to feeling like solitary confinement. This is why it is so important to look for evidence that you’re supported. Even if you’re alone, start with the bed you’re lying on. Is it holding you up? How about the Earth underneath that? Can you relax into that feeling? 🌵 Another way to look for evidence that you are supported is to notice the micro-kindness strangers. Maybe you really needed to see your doctor today and the receptionist squeezed you in. Or maybe you got lost due to brain fog and a stranger safely helped you home. Start collecting data that you are supported! Heck, your immune system is trying very hard right now to support you. 🌵 Part of Lyme Gets Better’s mission is to empower you on your healing journey. Falling into victimhood is SO easy with chronic and late-stage Lyme for so many reasons. But you can’t stay there and expect to get better. This is just a suggestion for you to take some of your power back. Try it on and let me know how you found a way today to feel supported. 🌵 #lymegetsbetter #remissionstories #keepgoing #lymedisease #lyme #chroniclyme #chroniclymedisease #invisibleillness #tickbornediseases #latestagelyme #chronicillness #youaresupported

Long post ahead.... Another day in limey Shitsville. Just when you think you’re going to have a decent week, WHAMMY! The fucking spirochetes decide to throw a rager and trash your house. This disease is emotionally, physically and spiritually exhausting. For most of us, it’s not just the Lyme we are trying to manage, but the added co-infections and other crap as well. For me that is high heavy metal toxicity, Epstein Barr, varicella, babesia, neuroborreliosis and the list goes on. Days like today are hard. Your brain feels like it’s going to explode, your joints hurt, you feel like you might pass out or throw up and it’s difficult to breath. It’s a disease with ever-changing symptoms. One day your joints hurt, the next your head pounds and all you can do is sit in the dark, the next your hand won’t stop twitching and you can’t properly form sentences. They say it will be two years of sticking to my protocol before I really feel better. That consists of 60 pills a day, 20 different tinctures, infrared sauna, ionic foot baths, lymph massage, colonics, castor oil packs, no sugar, no alcohol, no gluten, and many other protocols I have to follow as my body doesn’t detox on its own. It’s exhausting and takes up most of the day just managing it. I struggle with guilt as well. I feel guilty for being sick, guilty for not being able to be the fun and vivacious person I was, guilty for the cost as insurance doesn’t recognize chronic Lyme and therefore doesn’t cover treatments, guilty that I often have to cancel plans with friends and family. Luckily I have the most loving, supportive and empathetic husband beside me or I would have slipped into a black hole by now. Some days I just want to say fuck it, I’m having some wine and chocolate and going out to dinner, and I do. Usually I pay the price the next day, but it’s worth it to just feel normal for a day. The one thing this disease does is give you perspective, teaches you to truly not sweat the small stuff and makes you grateful for the little things you previously took for granted. I live for the days (cont.)

#Repost @themightysite with @get_repost ・・・ To anyone who has been made to feel bad because they walk but also use a wheelchair, this message from @abby_sams is for you: ••• "Today we're gunna have a quick chat about ambulatory wheelchair users. Did you know that nearly 90% of wheelchair users have at least some function in their legs?! I get a lot of comments of people asking if I'm 'better' 'cured' or 'faking' because they see some pictures of me in a wheelchair and some pictures of me standing. I am an ambulatory wheelchair user which means I can stand up from my chair and walk around a bit. This doesn't mean I'm faking. It doesn't mean I'm cured, and it certainly doesn't mean I'm better. My wheelchair is a tool that I use to help my body on a regular basis. It keeps me from being in too much pain and helps my energy levels when I know I'll be out and about for long periods of time. However, I also walk and that doesn't negate the fact that I need my wheelchair most of the time. EDS is a punk to my body ya'll. It's not a miracle when I stand to reach something on a high shelf (I've had someone yell that at me I kid you not) and I'm not faking when I pick up my chair from my trunk and sit in it (another thing I've been publicly accused of). ••• I'm tired of asking whoever is in the car with me to get my wheelchair and bring it to the door because I'm afraid of being harassed. I'm tired of assumptions and ignorance. So, this is my PSA: I'm Abby, I use a wheelchair but I can also walk sometimes. it's as simple as that. I shouldn't be scared to be myself in public. Take some time to educate yourself and think about how you perceive those in wheelchairs.

What is your favorite meal to prepare in the pressure cooker? 💚 Pressure cooker to the rescue. I was so hungry when I got home and I was not looking forward to waiting for the chicken I bought to cook in the oven for 45 minutes. 💚 My mom said," don't you have a pressure cooker?" 💚 Score 1 for Nunu. I totally forgot about it. Popped the chicken thighs in, an entire bag of organic carrots, an entire bag of baby red potatoes, sea salt, thyme, parsley, onions and garlic. Added 1 cup of water. Set it to 15 minutes. BOOM! Dinner is done! 💚 The flavors were absolutely incredible. The potatoes and carrots were perfectly cooked, and my family absolutely love it. 💚 Thinking I am just going to keep it on my counter as I predict many meals in the near future being whipped up in it. 💚 #lymewarrior #lymedisease #thechallenge #momlife #eatyourveggies #glutenfreelifestyle #paleomom #autumn🍁 #skimom #socialworker #kidsfood #walkonthebeach #birkenstocks #spoonielife #mealprepmadeeasy #momlifebelike #momlifeisthebest #unitedkingdom🇬🇧 #todayistheday #cleaneatingforlife #canada🍁 #healingjourney #gettingmylifeback #lymemom #detoxing #15minutemeals #pressurecooker #dinnertime #chickenthighs #dinnerideas at Vermont

Please please please support my amazing mom as she continues to fight her 10 year battle with Lyme Disease. She might look beautiful and well on the outside, but I have watched her suffer for so many years to get through each day. She has always taken care of us and made sure that we have everything we need, especially while I was going through chemo. She’s always put everyone else first but has been really struggling lately and we hope that this treatment facility will finally be the answer. Please send your prayers and donations if possible. It’s so unfair how expensive medical treatment is. 💔Every little bit helps! Link in bio! Please consider donating. XOXO 💚💚

An emerging new field of science is Peptide Therapy. Peptides are cell signaling amino acid sequences that initiate and support cell regulation and rejuvenation actions on neuro-endocrine-immune functionality. Peptides have the ability to restore bodily chemistry relationships to optimal functional homeostasis. This process is anti-aging to your cells, regenerative, restorative and can enhance your performance, both mentally and physically. Peptide therapy has been touted as the fountain of youth due to its well known anti-aging benefits, as well a favorite amongst athletes looking for increased strength and performance, call us today to start looking younger and perform better than ever now!!

The elevator is working again in our building!! This is my place under my girl for the elevator. It's important that I have manners in tight spaces. 😁 It can be frightening to have the door open to find a dog standing in front of you, 😱or to walk into a crowded elevator to make space for the dog. 🐕 Plus it keeps my tail from beating any nearby feets! 👟 We did some distraction training by the pool and in the parking lot the cats and racoons live! 🐱🗑️🐼 My girl said I did amazing! But dont I always? 😎 #heeler #adventureswithmiley #respectthevest #notouchie #highlightsonfleek #brendlebaby #brendle #smileymiley #alwaystraining #progressnotperfection #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #lupuswarrior #lupus #lymefighter #lymedisease #ra #partnerinlyme #rescue #savedtoservice #adopted #whosavedwhom #chronicillness #chronicpain #Neuropathy #vertigo #spoonie #whereareallmyspoons #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness

Thanks jnmads! We couldn't agree more 💖 #Repost @jnmads (@get_repost) ・・・ SATURDAYS ON ISLAND 🌴🌈🥥🌴🌈🥥🌴🌈 🥥 breakfasting with the best local smoothie boosts, including @tinyislekauai raw macadamia nut butter [the YUMMIEST nut butter you’ll find—also delicious on bananas, papayas, sweet potatoes and as the creamy base for the best homemade dressings] and @kauainectarco local bee pollen from @kauaijuiceco. 🐝 Similar to honey, bee pollen packs in major immune system protection and is antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. It has been shown to powerfully reduce inflammation as well as sensitivity to environmental allergens, and improve the body’s ability to heal. I’ve even read that studies have shown bee pollen to be an effective anti-stress food, as it increases blood flow to the nervous tissue and can improve both mental and physical endurance. 🐝 It also happens to be delicious 😋. As always, bee products sourced from your local environment will give you the most bang 🤙🏽 . . . . #saturdays #locallygrown #kauaigrown #foodismedicine #kauailife #selfcare #selfcaresaturday #nutrition #plantbased #holisticliving #holistichealth #immunity #mentalhealth #beepollen #localhoney #wellnesscoach #hormonehealth #healthywomen #instahealthy #biotoxinillness #lymedisease #healinglyme #healingjourney #toxinfreelifestyle #healthcoach #todayichoosejoy #iamwellandgood #happyhealthylife

Crying does not mean you aren’t strong. Accepting and being able to take in your emotions as they are, is so so healthy. Having a chronic illness is exhausting in so many ways beyond just physical. Allow yourself to fully feel everything( grief, laughter, love, fear and hope). I find myself crying a lot. And I’m okay about it because this disease sucks! We go through hell each and everyday fighting for our lives. And the constant one step forward five steps back is rough. We are kick ass for waking up each day still tackling something that feels unbearable. I just wanted to thank everyone who has chatted and reached out lately. Transitioning back into work has been extremely difficult. I still find that I don’t know I will every find the strength to push through each day. Without the support of everyone online, I don’t know what I would do. If looking forward into this week is terrifying and scary, know that you aren’t alone in this fight. We will hold each other up in support! 💪💪💚💚 #lymedisease #lymeawarenessmonth #bartonella #babesia #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #chronicpain #fighter #findingpeacewithlyme

@pranajunkie

i love the concept of bio-individuality. it jives with what i love about cultural diversity. but on a cellular level. it embraces our differences and doesn’t force us to fit some mold. 🌸 we are into the second week of our exploration diet and one of the things i can’t wait for the group to discover is that it’s ok to be different. there is no one perfect way to eat. and that’s beautiful.

Fear of nature…it’s something I have posted about before. It is a very real & common issue for those who have been knocked down by tick disease. I get lots of questions about tick-bite PREVENTION, which is the best way to save yourself & your loved ones from ever having to face the devastation of Lyme & co-infections. Since I was reinfected in my yard it is a place I have mostly avoided, but in order for me to even feel somewhat safe stepping foot out there I knew I needed to take some sort of action. 🌲😳🌳 The first year we used tick tubes. Then I read mixed things about their safety & effectiveness. I knew spraying pesticides was NOT an option for me. My honest opinion is that if you load your yard with toxic chemicals, then you are just setting yourself up for another type of illness. I usually try to keep things non-judgegental, but when it comes to spraying pesticides you aren’t just making that decision for yourself…you are making it for your neighbors, for all the wildlife that passes through, & for the Earth as a whole. One of my neighbors used to call me to let me know they would be spraying their trees, but they also absolutely loved feeding & watching songbirds. I ended up getting an e-mail from the @audubonsociety with the second picture in this post, so I shared it with my neighbors, asking them to reconsider…they haven’t sprayed their trees since. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY SPEAKING UP! ✨🗣💚💪🏼✨ After doing my homework I decided to hire @puresolutions_ for their organic & essential oil based yard treatment service. They even collect rainwater to mix in their solutions, which I appreciate. Is it perfect? Probably not (I’d rather not have to use anything), but it is a bit of protection that is more kind to our environment & I feel better about that. I like that the guy spraying it doesn’t have to wear a mask…that’s saying something! Now to convince other people in my town to make the healthier switch…I can literally smell & taste it when I walk by a pesticide-treated area. It impacts our health way more than we realize! 🚫☠️👉🏼💦🌿🌎✨ And DON’T FORGET your tick checks!!! 🕷 2nd Photo Credit: National Audubon Society

HOW TO ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Elevated levels of Estrogen causes are immune system to act differently. However, we also need enough Estrogen. Having this balanced is key. Ladies, think about OCP's, these could be making it harder to fight EBV. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Vitamin D is a must for health CD8+ T Cell production. Make sure your levels are optimal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Stress = Increased cortisol = Decreased pregnenolone = a lot of problems including hormone disruption! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's so many contributing factors to optimal health! This is why a holistic approach helps get to the core of what your body needs to get back on track. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To learn more about Naturopathic and Functional medicine.

💁Beauty foods♥️😘 ~Protein from grassfed collagen!🐄 ~Healthy fats from pili nuts, coconut, and cashews🌴🌰 ~Bonus functional ingredients like organic raspberries, cacao powder, and herbal tea🍓🍫 I love finding ways to get as much nutrition into every meal as possible, focusing of nutrient density from a wide variety of whole foods. Especially being in Anorexia recovery it's so important to maximize the healing vitamins, minerals, macro and micro nutrients you're providing to that remarkable body. Healing and recovery is such a beautiful thing, and I'm grateful for all delicious foods helping me restore my radiance.🌹🌻 #anorexiarecovery #edwarrior #paleo #paleolifestyle #paleosnacks #glutenfree #dairyfree #grainfree #soyfree #sugarfree #wholefoods #grassfed #collagen #healthyfats #pilinuts #coconutoil #bulletproof #wholefoods #justeatrealfood #lymedisease #autoimmunedisease #celiacdisease #foodallergies #foodasmedicine #epigenetics #holisticnutrition #integrativemedicine #functionalfoods at Monument Hill elevation 7352

@drmaryshackelton

I believe the environments we live in can greatly influence our health. 🌲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think of how much time you spend at home and at work? How much time do your children spend at school? 🏡⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If these spaces are not optimized to prevent exposure to harmful chemicals, air, water, noise, and electro-pollution, then we cannot have the best health possible. 🙅🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I’ve talked about for years, the first step to detoxification is minimizing or eliminating our environmental exposures. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We must consider our environment and invest as much of our time and resources into improving our environment as we do to what we put in our bodies. 🧘🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Double tap 💜 if you agree! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #drmaryshackelton #natropath #healingprocess #healingpractice #dailywellness #detoxify #getoutside #naturetherapy #groundtherapy #groundedintheearth #playinthedirt #selfhealing #ibs #leakygut #tummytroubles #paleo #lymedisease #autoimmune #chronicillness #choosejoy #liveinspired #naturalmedicine #naturalmedication #naturalhealthcare #naturalhealthandwellness #naturalhealing #healthconcious #healthwarrior #wellnessblogger #wellnessjourney at Boulder, Colorado

@chronicallyhealed

Going out and living life is healing, even when it's difficult. ❤ One evening out meant that I would be in bed the entire next day, or even week. ❤ But it was so worth it! I lost all my spoons but gained endurance, joy, and victory! 😃 Don't let the chronic illness stop you from living life. It's okay to enjoy life even if you have a chronic illness. The pain will continue, but don't let it tell you that you are not allowed to enjoy life 😁 .

To anyone who has been made to feel bad because they walk but also use a wheelchair, this message from @abby_sams is for you: ••• "Today we're gunna have a quick chat about ambulatory wheelchair users. Did you know that nearly 90% of wheelchair users have at least some function in their legs?! I get a lot of comments of people asking if I'm 'better' 'cured' or 'faking' because they see some pictures of me in a wheelchair and some pictures of me standing. I am an ambulatory wheelchair user which means I can stand up from my chair and walk around a bit. This doesn't mean I'm faking. It doesn't mean I'm cured, and it certainly doesn't mean I'm better. My wheelchair is a tool that I use to help my body on a regular basis. It keeps me from being in too much pain and helps my energy levels when I know I'll be out and about for long periods of time. However, I also walk and that doesn't negate the fact that I need my wheelchair most of the time. EDS is a punk to my body ya'll. It's not a miracle when I stand to reach something on a high shelf (I've had someone yell that at me I kid you not) and I'm not faking when I pick up my chair from my trunk and sit in it (another thing I've been publicly accused of). ••• I'm tired of asking whoever is in the car with me to get my wheelchair and bring it to the door because I'm afraid of being harassed. I'm tired of assumptions and ignorance. So, this is my PSA: I'm Abby, I use a wheelchair but I can also walk sometimes. it's as simple as that. I shouldn't be scared to be myself in public. Take some time to educate yourself and think about how you perceive those in wheelchairs. Let's change the stigma around ambulatory wheelchair users." ••• #AmbulatoryWheelchairUsersExist #AmbulatoryWheelchairUsers #disability #invisibleillness #lymedisease #multiplesclerosis #cysticfibrosis #ulcerativecolitis #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicfatigue #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniecommunity #fibromyalgia #disability #wheelchair #cancer #raredisease #mentalhealth #lupus #lupuswarrior #ehlersdanlossyndrome #potssyndrome #themightysite

Healthcare is a human right // It’s devastating to hear a see the lives lost or ruined because they don’t have access to healthcare. Healthcare is a human right, money should not limit your health. We are are putting a price on people’s lives, when in reality live is priceless and healthcare should be too! People shouldn’t be choosing between their food of their medication. People shouldn’t be paying of thousands and thousands of $$$ just because they were unlucky enough to have a car accident. Parents shouldn’t have to choose between sending their kid to college or paying medication. Money should not rule healthcare. Tell me your opinions below!! - [ID: A black man in a black t shirt, is holding a protest sign above his head that reads: HEALTHCARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT.

Thanks to anybody who has reached out in this past while. I'm not doing so well right now and it means everything to hear from somebody who cares 💝 the only way I'm able to get through this is the help of others 🙌 A very special shoutout to @emmaljwilliams who has been with me through this since day 1 and has helped me through an unimaginably hard time. You never stopped believing me even when doctors didn't. You were the one who pointed me in the right direction to a diagnosis! You listened to all of my sad stories and hard times. And you were right there with me. And above all you cared. And you made me feel human again. And loved. I'll never forget that. Another big shoutout to @eden_grace_plester who is so kind and sweet to me always, And listened and helped me as much as she could, even though she's all the way in New Zealand! She sent me this mask when I needed it most and couldn't afford it. Which I am beyond grateful for, it has made a huge difference in my life. You two beautiful and beyond kind ladies have made my life magic again. and I am so lucky to have you in it. Thank you. I Love you so much. 💖💝❤💗 #love #lymewarrior #lymedisease #lyme #friends #loveyou #beautiful #women #kind #bestfriend #lymediseaseawareness #bekindalways
